“Meher Ramesh’s directorial venture ‘Bhola Shankar,’ starring megastar Chiranjeevi in the titular role, has made a grand debut in overseas markets. Serving as an official remake of the Tamil film ‘Vedalam,’ the Telugu version has been tailored to suit local audiences.
Global fans of Chiranjeevi eagerly anticipated the film, hoping for yet another blockbuster akin to ‘Waltair Veerayya.’ The teaser, trailer, and song glimpses further heightened expectations. However, following the film’s expansive release, reviews have been varied. While some admirers praise Chiranjeevi’s comedic timing, screen presence, and appearance, others express disappointment with the director Meher Ramesh and a perceived missed opportunity.
‘Bhola Shankar’ boasts Keerthy Suresh and Tamannaah in prominent female lead roles. Keerthy Suresh portrays Shankar’s sister Mahalakshmi, and both actresses share the screen with Chiranjeevi for the first time.
The narrative follows Bhola Shankar as he relocates to Kolkata with his adopted sister Mahalakshmi for her education, all the while concealing his true identity as a former gangster on a personal mission. The film unravels the mysteries surrounding Mahalakshmi’s family and Shankar’s agenda.
Having released overseas prior to its domestic premiere, ‘Bhola Shankar’ has generated significant buzz on social media platforms, especially Twitter, now known as ‘X.’ Chiranjeevi’s devoted fan base, spread across the globe, has eagerly taken to microblogging to share their impressions of the film.
